Disney’s Top Tables

Best Family Restaurants/Meals

  • 50’s Prime Time Café at Disney’s Hollywood Studios – Step out of the movies and right into mom’s kitchen at this spectacular restaurant, which is a replica of a kitchen from the 1950’s, complete with black and white TVs playing shows from the era. “Mom” or “Pop” will be your server for the evening, so make sure you clear your plate (favorites include meatloaf and vegetables) and ask before getting up from the dinner table! The atmosphere alone is worth a trip to the 50’s Prime Time Café – the food is just an extra bonus!
  • Whispering Canyon Café – Located in the lobby area of Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, this restaurant may seem unassuming, but once inside, you will find that it is anything from the ordinary. With food served right out of an iron skillet and waitresses/waiters that are there to not only serve you food but make sure you enjoy yourself, you can ensure your entire family of a good time with just one meal at the Whispering Canyon Café. Whatever you do, however – just don’t ask for the ketchup!
  • Hoop-Dee-Doo Revue – Located at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campgrounds, this two-hour dinner show combines the best of both worlds – good wholesome Disney entertainment and a never-ending supply of family-style home cooking! The Pioneer Hall Players act as your hosts for the evening, bringing you their vibrant personalities and musical acts while interacting with the crowd. This experience may be one of the more costly meals on property, but it is well worth it for the amount of fun that you will have while there.
Best Character Dining Meals
  • Crystal Palace – At the Magic Kingdom Park, the best buffet for your money and one of the best character dining experiences is the Crystal Palace restaurant on Main Street U.S.A. This all-you-can-eat buffet is open every meal of the day, but the breakfast buffet is one of the most popular and sought-after tables at Disney. In addition to good food and a separate kid’s buffet line, you will be joined by Winnie the Pooh and pals for the meal of a lifetime!
  • Chef Mickey’s – Chef Mickey’s buffet is one of the most popular tables to get at Disney and is definitely the top character dining experience located outside of a park. As the name states, you will join Chef Mickey and friends in a unique setting at Disney’s Contemporary Resort with a view of the monorail overhead. With a buffet full of seasonal dishes and a sundae bar for dessert, you can’t go wrong with a visit to Chef Mickey’s for either breakfast or dinner!
  • Cinderella’s Royal Table – As any parent with a young girl will tell you, the Disney princesses are in high demand at the Walt Disney World Resort. That is perhaps why Cinderella’s Royal Table has become one of Disney’s top tables. At this fine dining restaurant, you will dine in Cinderella Castle’s private dining hall amongst the Disney Royal Family at either the Once Upon a Time Breakfast or the Fairytale Lunch. Cinderella’s Royal Table also hosts a dinner each evening that includes a welcome fit for royalty and a special appearance by the Fairy Godmother.
Best for Young Adults
  • Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant – Located at Downtown Disney Pleasure Island, the Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant has quickly become one of Pleasure Island’s main draws for the over-21 crowd in Orlando. Guests sit indoors or outdoors and enjoy traditional Irish fare (and drinks) amidst the charm of a restaurant straight out of Ireland, complete with live Irish music, four bars and traditional dancing and storytelling. Disney is authentic in everything they do, and this Irish pub is no different!
  • House of Blues – Located at the Downtown Disney West Side, the House of Blues doubles as a concert venue and restaurant. Along with the popular acts that are constantly parading through the venue, the House of Blues also has a good mix of Southern and American cuisine in its dining hall. Whether there is an act playing that night or not, you can also find live music taking place outside on most nights as well, a welcoming place for young adults to gather before or after a good meal.

Best Overall Tables at Disney

  • California Grill – Located on the top floor of Disney’s Contemporary Resort, the food won’t be the only thing to take your breath away at this fine-dining restaurant. With stunning views, including a balcony outside that overlooks the Magic Kingdom Park, you can top off your dinner with a perfect view of Wishes, the nighttime fireworks spectacular at the Magic Kingdom Park.
  • Victoria & Albert’s – Located at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, the most luxurious resort on property and one of the nicest hotels in all of Orlando, Victoria & Albert’s is consistently rated as one of the top tables in Orlando by food critics. In addition to the elegant setting and intimate feel, this Victorian restaurant also has a chef’s table each evening set inside the actual kitchen that comes complete with a seven-course meal and your own personal maid and butler. You have to think ahead if you want to score the chef’s table, however; it is so hard to book that you often have to call exactly 180 days prior to your selected date (the earliest you can book it) to make reservations.

For any of the above restaurants, call (407) WDW-DINE up to 180 days prior to your arrival for priority seating arrangements.
